    My wife as an IPhone 4 (she isn't an android person).

    For the Holidays she want's "comfortable" ear buds.

    She doesn't care about how they sound just that they are comfortable.

    Any suggestions would be great especially if I can order them from Amazon.


    I don't really use them but the ones that came with the Nexus feel and sound great to me...

    I have some klipsch earbuds and they are very comfortable, come with several different sized ear things, don't know their exact term, so I will call them ear things but you know the piece that actually goes in your ear, they're interchangeable.

    You sound like me "ear things".

    I want something reasonably priced and comfortable. Klipsch may be expensive.

    I have the Klipsh non Mic ear buds and they are pretty nice. My experience is usually ear buds comfort is always extremely subjective depending on the person.

    I like them, they have great sound but as mentioned are a little pricey.

    I know they aren't cheap but the Bose earbuds are extremely comfortable. Plus they have controls for iphone volume. You may not care what they sound like now, but put them in and you will have an eargasm. Definitely worth it in my opinion.

    Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating Headphones ($80)

    Amazon.com: Klipsch IMAGE S4 In-Ear Enhanced Bass Noise-Isolating Headphones (Black): Electronics

    and here's the key...

    Comply T-100 Series Foam Tips ($15/3 pack)

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003U9VWGO/ref=oh_o04_s00_i00_details

    The foam tips really make a huge difference. They come in assorted sizes. I'd suggest getting a sampler pack first (one in small, one medium, one large), then ordering a 3 pack in the preferred size.

    Super comfy, and they won't come out at the gym even when sweating heavily (trust me).

    I have these ear buds, which sound really nice for ear buds, and I use medium foam tips. They're very comfortable and sound good. They do not sound as good as a high quality pair of over-the-ear headphones, but no ear buds do (that I can afford).

    If she doesn't care for the silicone tips you can get foam tips for that model too.

    Actually I like the ones it came with. She has the crappy IPhone ones and it hurts her ears - all she cares about is comfort. I don't listen to music that much with them on but I may after hearing how good it sounds.

    I was looking for some nice earbuds for work. I found these to be an excellent choice...Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones - Clear I wear them at work, anywhere from 8-12hrs. a day, and they are really comfortable. They come with 3 sizes of foam tips, and 3 sizes of rubber tips. Great sound isolation, as I work near loud, heavy machinery. I paid $99 for them at Guitar Center: Musical Instruments - Guitars, Bass, Drums, Amps & DJ because I didn't want to wait for shipping. Excellent value IMO.

    What do you want to spend? There were definitely some awesome ear buds mentioned. If you want low cost, stop in tjmaxx.
